I don't own Bones, I know I have 206 in my body, but the Bones from Fox isn't mine.
I'm glad everyone asked for a sequel. I missed writing this story, and it will be good to visit with it again.
They were going home. Wow, that sounded good. He couldn't wait to see their friends, and tell them the good news. He was marrying Bones, the one person who completed him. She insisted that they fly first class. He didn't mind, at least he didn't have to sneak up here to see her, because she was next to him. He couldn't stop smiling. He could never remember being this happy.
"Bones, is Cam meeting us?"
"Yes Booth, for the tenth time."
"Are you sure you didn't tell Angela, because she would tell Hodgins, and he would tell the whole lab"
"Booth I told you, I avoided talking to her all week, so I wouldn't accidently tell her. No one knows."
Cam was waiting at the airport. When she saw Temperance walk by herself down the runway, she cried.
"Hello Booth, Dr. Brennan." Then she grabbed them both and hugged them. "Sorry, it's just so good to see you. How was the flight?"
"Quiet and long. Is the team at the Jeffersonian?"
"How mad would you be if I said they were all at Jack and Angela's waiting for you. You see Angela didn't want to bring the baby to the Jeffersonian, so we brought the Jeffersonian to her. They are waiting to welcome you home."
Booth leaned over to whisper in her ear. "Bones we won't stay long, remember these people have been very worried about you for four months. Play nice."
She whispered back, "Yes, sir."
Since they had sent all their belongings ahead, they only had their carry-ons to take with them. They were on their way in minutes.
As they pulled up in front of Jack and Angela's place, they were greeted by a scream; Angela came running out of the house. "Finally, I've waited so long to see you. The internet just doesn't cut it."
She hugged Bones. "Hurry up and come in, everyone wants to say hello"
They followed her into the house.
"SURPRISE", everyone yelled. Not everyone was there, but it seemed like most of their friends came. They were greeted and hugged for what felt like forever, and when it finally quieted down. Booth took Bones' hand and said, "We have an announcement." He gave the floor to Bones. She yelled, "We are getting married."
Silence, if that could be considered a sound, was all they heard. Then it seemed like everyone screamed at once. Angela hugged her again, "Sweetie I'm so happy. I have waiting for this for years." She looked at Booth, "It's about time Studley." Everyone laughed.
Her Dad came over to see her. "Honey, I'm so happy for you. I'm glad you two were able to work this out."
"Dad, I listened to your advice, I let him explain and I gave him another chance. We talked a lot, and we know we both made mistakes, but look where we ended up. I'm so happy Dad; I know this was the right thing to do."
"You mother would be so proud."
Brennan began to cry. "I wish she was here." "She is honey, she is."
"I'm not going to argue about the impossibility of that statement, because this is a happy occasion but you do know that's impossible."
"Honey you believe what you want, I will believe what I want."
Angela came up behind her, "Do you want to see the baby?"
"Yes, more than anything, and I have a question for you. Is there somewhere we can talk, and I can sit down. Standing still exhausts me."
Angela took her hand, "Come here, this is a big house."
"Just let me tell Booth, ok?"
She went to Booth and whispered in his ear that she would be back in a little while. He kissed her and let her go.
"Man, I'm seriously going to have to get used to that." Hodgins said
Booth was enjoying the party. He missed all his friends, and was happy to be home. He would be staying with Bones until they could buy a house. She wanted something big, but not as big as Hodgins. He was wondering just how much money she had. He knew they had an appointment with her lawyer later in the week, and he would find out then. He told her he would sign a prenup, but she got mad and he didn't bring it up again.
When he got the chance he left to go find Bones, he missed her. He didn't understand the bond that had formed between them over the past few months, but he felt lost when she wasn't around. How was he ever going to go to work? He found her and Angela in the baby's room. She was holding Enjoli in her arms. She looked so perfect with a child in her arms he couldn't wait for them to have one. They had talked about, but decided to wait until she was completely healed.
"Hi, Bones." He kissed her head.
"Hi Booth, get bored?"
"No I just missed you." He put his arms around her.
"Do you want to hold the baby?"
"Yes." She placed her in his arms. He remembered when he held Parker for the first time, and he felt overwhelmed. "She's so tiny."
"Well she's only eight days old. What do you think she would be full grown?" Angela said.
"No, but I was remembering Parker, and it's hard to imagine him so small."
"Booth we need to tell Parker. Would you like to go when we leave here?"
"Can we? That would be great; he's going to be so happy. I know he wanted this. That week he spent with us made him love you. He told me he was glad I was with you."
"Well I am the logical choice."
"Bones you're the only choice."
"We should get downstairs before everyone comes looking for us." He handed the bay back to Angela.
"I'll be down in a minute; I have to tell Angela something. You should talk to Jack."
He got the hint; and went searching for Jack.
Angela handed her back the baby. She rocked her in the rocking chair. "Angela, can I ask you something?"
"Yeah, Sweetie, what is it?"
"Would you be my maid of honor?"
Angela quietly screamed. "Yes, of course. Do you have a date?"
"No not yet a lot depends on my recovery. We wanted to wait. Besides this is still new to us. We didn't date before, we were just partners. We are still getting to know each other."
"I'm so happy for you. I can't believe it finally happened. Although the accident was a terrible thing, look what happened?"
"I know, it's strange how it all worked out. It was so uncanny to meet Booth as if I didn't know him. When I first saw him in the hospital, I didn't know who he was, but I felt like I needed him near me. I felt lost whenever he left the room. I guess a part of me always knew. We had better get back to the party, or Booth will be back. I hoped he asked Hodgins already."
"Do you mean to be best man?" she handed the baby back to the nanny.
"Yes, but don't tell him, I case Booth didn't ask yet."
"I won't say a word."
They went back to the party, but Bones was getting tired, and she asked Booth if they could go home. Her father brought the Prius to Angela's so they could leave when they wanted. After saying good-bye to everyone, they left.
"Bones, you looked so wonderful holding Enholi, are you sure you want to wait?"
"Yes, Booth, it wouldn't be conductive to my health to have a baby now, a few months won't matter."
"I agree I just wanted to give you the option, but be sure to tell me when you're ready."
"I will. Are we going to see Parker?"
"If you feel up to it, I called and Rebecca said we can take him out for ice cream, he already ate dinner."
"I want to go, and ice cream sounds nice, maybe we can go to the diner?"
"That would be great, I'll call Rebecca now and tell her to tell him."
"You didn't tell her already?"
"Bones I wanted to be sure you wanted to go first. I won't make plans without asking you first, that's what couples do."
"Thanks", she said; he constantly surprised her.
Parker was waiting for them on the steps when they pulled in front of the house.
"DAD!" he yelled. He ran toward his father and hugged him tight. "I missed you."
"I missed you too Parks." Bones saw tears in his eyes. He was such a good father.
He hugged Bones next, Hi Bones, it's good to see you, are you going to stay with my Dad?"
"Well he's staying with me, is that ok?"
"That's great, now we can talk about Science and stuff." They got into the car.
"Buckle up buddy." I know Dad.
"Would you like to go get ice cream?"
"Yeah, and it's a school night too. This is great."
Bones laughed, she was becoming very attached to this kid.
They went to the diner, and everyone was glad to see them. Booth ordered pie, Bones got cheesecake, and Parker ordered moose tracks ice cream.
After their food arrived, Booth told him, "Hey, Parker we have to tell you something."
"Bones and I are getting married."
"Really, you mean she's going to be there all the time and that other lady's not coming back?"
"Yes, Bud, she will be there all the time."
Parker pumped his fist in the air. "Yeah, this is so cool. I'm going to have two moms. I can't wait to tell the kids at school, and I get to play with Bones all the time." He got up and hugged his Booth. "This is the best day ever."
Parker told Booth about his friends at school, and about a little girl that he liked. "Bones, you know what?"
"My experiment is going real well, Hodgins is great, but will you work with me now that your back. I want to do it with you."
Bones eyes started to fill, "Yes Parker, I will finish it with you. We can bring all the things to my place and work on it there ok?"
"That would be great."
Parker we have to go now, it's getting late, and it's a school night." Booth said.
"I knew you were going to say that. Ok let's go."
"Look only one more day and you will be with me for the weekend. Mom said I could have every weekend for a while, because we missed so much time together."
"Really, this is the best day ever, even better than Christmas." They walked out of the diner and got into the car." Parker talked about school, and what they could do that weekend, and Bones promised to bring his experiment home so they could work on it. Soon they were at his house.
"Bye, Dad, bye Bones, I glad you're going to be my second mom." He hugged them both and ran into the announcing the news to the whole neighborhood.
They drove back to Bones' place. "Well that went well. I told you he likes you."
Bones was quiet. "What should he call me? I don't want to hurt Rebecca's feelings, but he referred to me and a second mom."
'''don't worry Bones, we will let him decide, will it matter if he still calls you Bones?"
"No, not at all. That's what I thought he would call me. I just didn't expect that reaction."
"Told you he loves you", Booth smiled, Parker was right this was the best day ever.
